VALENCIA CITY BUKIDNON | BUKIDNON NEWS | COMMENTARY | OPINION | VALENCIA CITY NEWS | VALENCIA BUKIDNON – So apparently the Malaybalay City government isn’t the most “bongga” LGU in the entire Philippines. We initially wrote a blog entry wondering if the City of Malaybalay employees received the biggest cash gift in the entire country. Well, we received the answer today.
A regular reader of Bukidnon Online just told us via text message that Malaybalay’s neighboring city, Valencia City, allegedly just released a whopping P100,000 (more than US $2,000) EACH to elected officials and department heads. Allegedly, Valencia City regular employees, meanwhile, received P80,000 EACH. Casual employees of the Valencia City local government unit allegedly received P50,000 EACH while job order employees’ cash gifts allegedly ranged between P17,000 and P20,000.
According to our very reliable source, a total of P65 Million budget was released as year-end cash gifts.
I KNOW, RIGHT?????
We’re pretty sure the bonuses released by the Valencia City government to its employees are the highest in the entire Philippines.
